Established in 2011, Chicago Truborn is a community–based non–traditional gallery dedicated to supporting often neglected, mediums of artistic creation with an emphasis on street/urban/graffiti/art. We are most passionate about providing collectors with affordable artwork in an approachable environment.
Chicago Truborn works with local and international artists alike — most who paint predominantly with aerosol. For every show the featured artist paints two, site specific, in–store murals to coincide with their body of work. The gallery has thrice won the title “Best Gallery” for being highly innovative, approachable, and affordable while maintaining a high caliber of artistry.
The gallery’s reputation has grown immensely through its vital role in the public arts scene and our continued dedication to mural production. Chicago Truborn has curated and site managed over 50 public pieces all over the Chicago area, partnering with organizations such as the Chicago Bears & Nike. Director Sara Dulkin has been instrumental in Chicago’s public arts renaissance as co-curator on projects like the Wabash Arts Corridor and the West Town Public Arts Initiative. Enjoying and consuming artwork should not be an intimidating experience, or one reserved for those with big bank accounts. Please come on in, ask questions, take pictures and let us help you #BECOMEaCOLLECTOR
Openings typically take place on Saturdays, 6–10 pm. Featured exhibitions run for 5 weeks. Please refer to our website for details.
Available works are always available for purchase via our online gallery at Shop.ChicagoTruborn.com
